Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is the real McCoy. Barrel aged and crammed with coffee, none other will stand in it’s way. Sought out for being delicious, it is notoriously difficult to track down. If you can find one, shoot to kill, because it is definitely wanted... dead or alive.

Love the huge maple up front with balanced whiskey, subtle coffee, dark cocoa; semisweet, wee cinnamon, big whiskey, the coffee is superb. Yet bitter, bold, and some plum, too for flavors; luscious, creamy mouthfeel that lasts and lasts; bitter, sweet, whiskey, roasty finish.

Jet black with minimal head and a shiny oily luster. The nose and taste is big coffee upfront and settles into more of a Maple and Bourbon focus as it warms, however all three of the Coffee, Maple, and Bourbon remain throughout and interact well as it warms. The mouthfeel is an absolute 5 from the chilly beginning though the warm finish, with smooth sticky oil-like viscosity. Easily meets the hype, never had better!

Unbelievable maple nose and maple flavor. My hand smelled like maple the next day. Thick and great mouth feel.

Batch 3 (2016), Bottle #882. 12 oz bottle split three ways into TG tulips.

Upon opening, immediate maple syrup aromas fill the area. Pours a jet black, oily body with a small brown head that reduces quickly. The surface has a slick and oily texture.

Once in the glass the aromas intensify, with some coffee and bourbon coming through now, but maple syrup still dominates. It's odd, this smells more like maple syrup that actual maple syrup. Not artificial in the least bit.

Taste is pure and smooth, rich maple and bourbon fudge, more maple, sweet but not cloying, finishing with roasty coffee notes. Mouthfeel is what put this beer at the top for me. Rich, thick, velvety, easy.

I've never given a beer all 5's, but I can't find any flaws here. The thicker body puts it a hair above Good Morning.

To put the intense maple flavor profile of this beer in perspective, my kitchen still smelled like maple syrup the next morning.

2016 batch poured into a TG tulip.
Upon opening, maple just filled the room. Tons of maple.
Look is super viscous. Motor oil like. Opaque black. Coats the glass.
Taste is all maple up front and then finishes with a coffee flavor that I found to be a touch astringent. Faded as it warmed though.
Feel was super thick, viscous body. Coated my mouth and lingered.
Overall, this is one of the best beers I’ve ever had. Simply amazing flavors with the maple and coffee working together while maintaining balance.
